Rough Prices for Excursions

Hi there,

I wondered if anyone could help. A friend and myself will be spending a week in Kerala next July. Whilst there we would like to participate in a few excursions but would like to know how much to roughly be paying.

We are interested in the following:

- An overnight stay on the backwaters

- A full day Jungle Safari at Thekkady

- A full day at Kovalam (train or taxi? which is best/cheaper?)

- A full day at the Western Ghats (Munnar)

-If time permits, a full day at Cochin.

We ourselves will be based in Varkala.

Thank you in advance fpr any help/advice.

i Tartarus-

There is a tourist information office just located 30 meters from the steps of where all the rituals are performed ,This is right on the southern end of Varkala papanasam beach .

The tourist office organised the whole trip taxi pick up etc ,we asked for a 3 hour trip and the name of the young boat owner is mr Vijeesh Vimalan.

We took this trip just 2 weeks ago, on returning to the Varkala Marine Palace hotel we told another couple of our experience .They also went on the same trip and came back with a glowing report. .Just ask the tourist office to book this boat .
